The Crown Desolventizer is a vertically oriented cylinder with multiple trays that are heated with steam, hot water or oil. The desolventizer employs indirect heat transfer to desolventize ethanol, hexane or other solvent-wet products on a low-cost basis. When the product allows, we can also introduce steam into the desolventizer and combine direct and indirect heat transfer, thus reducing the overall equipment size.
- Low-pressure steam or stripping gases can be added in the bottom tray to clear the vapor spaces surrounding the material.
- Vertical, multiple-tray design minimizes footprint
- Sweep arms prevent large agglomerates from forming
